It’s time once again to celebrate at Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor). Coming up just one week from tomorrow, Saturday, November 5th, Two Beers Brewing will celebrate their 9th Anniversary from 1 pm to 7 pm. For this year’s Anniversary celebration, Two Beers is revisiting their past a bit. They’ve dug into both their pantry and their cellar to bring back some special cask infusions that were more prevalent during the previous iteration of The Woods taproom, as well as some vertical tastings of their Alta Series’ beers, including the now retired Ascension 2013, High Divide 2013 among others.
Also returning in time for the Anniversary celebration is Two Beers’ popular Jive Espresso Stout, and they will be debuting the latest addition to their lineup: Tipsy Toboggan Winter Ale. This Winter Warmer comes in at 6.8% and will be available on draft and in 12 oz cans starting on November 5th.
Here is the full press release from Two Beers Brewing Company:
SEATTLE (October 27, 2016) – On Saturday, November 5, Two Beers Brewing invites craft beer lovers to join them as they raise a glass to nine exciting years of brewing! Celebrating their anniversary from 1-7pm at their SoDo tasting room – known as The Woods – the team at Two Beers Brewing has dug into the cellar and opened the barrels for a tap lineup you won’t want to miss. In addition, Two Beers Brewing’s winter seasonals – Jive Espresso Stout and the new Tipsy Toboggan Winter Ale – will make their debut on tap and on the shelves.
“I’m proud and amazed by how far our brewery has come in nine years,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder of Two Beers Brewing Co. “To look back at the 170 square feet we started in and how much we’ve grown as a team is inspiring. We’ll continue to push the boundaries as we enter into our tenth year and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s been a genuine pleasure watching Two Beers grow from a small brewery with a four seat taproom to the amazing brewery, cidery and taproom they have become today. I’m really looking forward to this year’s Anniversary celebration – particularly the Infusions and Casks listed above and the Alta Series’ verticals. I’m also curious to see what special menu items Bread & Circuses will come up with for the event. I hope to see you there.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
